Hi I'm Polly

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am married to a Solider in the US Army and a step-mom to three great kiddos. I was divorced and thought I would never remarry. I taught school (high school English and Spanish for 10 yrs and Elementary Spanish for 3). I have lived all over the United States, Peru and Mexico. I love to read, cook, travel, hike, snowshoe, horseback ride, and camp. I enjoy plants and gardening.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because living the teachings of the gospel makes me happy and brings me peace. In the confusion of the world I find a sure foundation in the teachings of Christ that I find through the scriptures. In the most challenging times of my life I knew my Father in Heaven was with me and helped me through things that I know I could not handle on my own. I know that we are all children of a loving Father in Heaven Who knows us individually. He wants us to be happy and has given us a plan to show us how to achieve peace in this life. The Book of Mormon is the word of God and presents Christ's gospel in the most clear, understandable way I have ever read. I know you can find peace in this crazy world.

How I live my faith

I pray daily. My relationship with God and Jesus Christ is vital to me. I read the scriptures every day. Usually I will start with a prayer asking that I will be open to what the Lord wants me to learn. Then I look up a topic in the Bible Dictionary and then read the first verse listed. I then write down the impressions that come to my mind. I then reread the verse and write down anything else that comes to my mind. I continue until nothing else comes to my mind then I go back to the dictionary and begin with the next verse listed. This has opened my mind to the words of the Lord in a way I never imagined possible. Studying the words of the Lord and praying to Heavenly Father has given me calm and peace no matter what else is going on around me. I know that Heavenly Father loves you too and you can find the same peace that I have.
